The high-definition quality LCD screens, with SVGA 800 x 600 pixels, provide
sharp images and superior visibility. 65,536 colors make screen views realistic
and crisp, making it easy to see precise readings of graphs or data instantly.
At up to 700cd/m2, these are also the brightest displays in the
The 8.4 and 10.4 inch HG3G are
packed full of features. With 12MB of user memory, HG3G has plenty of space to
create large projects. And for additional data storage, SD cards and USB Flash
Drives can be used.
The HG3G Series also has wide
range of connectivity. Up to 2 MicroSmart digital I/O modules can be mounted
for simple I/O control, while Audio Out capability lets customers use sound to alert
the floor immediately in case of a problem. Pre-recorded messages can even be
used as a voice guidance system for more efficient operations. In addition,
there are more communication ports. A built-in Ethernet port allows remote
communications with PLCs by using a supported Network Driver; two USB ports
allow high-speed data transfer; and two serial communication ports offer a wide
range of communication capabilities.
The HG3G series is programmed using WindOI-NV2 (part of the Automation
Organizer suite, version 1.32 or higher), which now supports Windows 7
(64-bit). WindOI-NV2 has more than 7,000 symbol factory images to help create a
state-of-the-art graphical screen. A free 30-day demo is available at www.IDEC.com/demos.
All HG3G models are CE-marked, c-UL-us listed and have IP66 protection.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
